I had a great experience with Phillips Construction. Matthew installed over 1,500 sq ft of concrete for an additional parking pad at the top of my driveway. The concrete work turned out beautiful and Matthew was great to work with. I highly recommend Phillips Construction for any of your concrete needs!

    The Letlow Company recently completed a remodel/addition for us, and the quality of their work clearly distinguishes them from all others. Each day workers arrived punctually and worked efficiently with precision and accuracy. They were very considerate of our personal lives and needs, and even took care to protect our pets as well. They worked as unintrusively as possible as we lived around and among the construction. Living areas were shielded completely from the construction, and possessions remaining within the construction area were painstakenly protected. All workers were very trustworthy. We were away during one week of the project, but work continued on schedule with workers having access to the home in our absence. All subcontractors were very courteous, experienced, and professional. We felt comfortable and confident having them around at any time. At times we felt like some had practically become members of the family! We were also very pleased and impressed by the care exerted by all workers to minimize the accumulation of construction debris and to protect existing landscape. Mr. Letlow personally coordinated all aspects of the project and was very detail oriented. He was conscientious about scheduling the completion to fit our needs. He is very knowledgeable about current trends and developments so he was able to offer valuable advice and input both pre-construction and during construction when we had some uncertainties of our own. He patiently considered all our ideas and how to incorporate them into every aspect. He was readily available to communicate concerns and ideas to, and very open and receptive to any possible changes that seem to be inherent as projects progress. There was never any guessing as to how the final project would turn out since Mr. Letlow provided professionally rendered drawings of all phases of development and a detailed contract. Aside from cost, our main concerns were the transition from our existing home into the remodel/addition, and for the design to be an expression of ourselves. We didn’t want it to be obvious to guests, but to look as if everything was intended to be the way it was, and it had always been there. We can truly say these goals were achieved. I highly recommend The Letlow Company to anyone considering any level of renovation or construction. Their attention to detail and quality of construction during all phases, plus respect for the homeowners’ needs and expectations are what separate them from all the others. We are extremely satisfied and delighted with the outcome and quality of the project, and would call them again for any construction needs. We feel the project has added much value and appeal to our home. It has definitely exceeded all our expectations and we feel that it would not have been possible without the professional services of the Letlow Company.

        Q & A

        Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

        How do architects work?

        Architects may work for an architecture or engineering firm, they may work for a government organization, they can work for a construction company, or they may be self-employed (freelance). The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics explains that architects spend a large amount of their working time in the home or company office: meeting with clients; creating reports and architectural drawings; and working with other architects and engineers. When not in an office, an architect is often at the construction site either as part of the development of plans or to ensure building progress is following the blueprint.

        When a client interacts with an architect, it is typically to have them design drawings for the construction of a house or a building. If you are a client who has hired a large architecture firm, there may be a team of people working on your design. But if you are working with a freelance architect or a smaller firm, one person (or a small group) will take your concept and translate it into an architectural blueprint that a builder can use to construct a house. The plans will lay out everything from the depth of the foundation to the materials to use to the type of metal to be used in the reinforcement. Once the plans have been created and handed off to the builder, the architect may remain on the project — depending on budget — and oversee progress.

        How do architects charge for their services?

        According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the median salary of an architect in 2016 was $76,930. This range included architects with every type of company as well as self-employed architects. Depending on the architect and whether they’re with a firm or independent, they may charge per hour or by the square foot, or they may charge a percentage of the total budget for a construction project. An hourly rate is typically used for smaller projects such as providing consultation, helping clients hone their concept before the design process begins, or drafting documents and plans. If an architect is working on an hourly basis on a larger project, there will usually be an agreed-upon cap on the number of hours they will work. For larger projects, such as new construction or total overhaul remodels, architects may charge a percentage of the total construction costs. The architect will usually set the percentage you will pay after the total cost of construction has been accounted for. Percentages can range within a firm depending on the extent of the services they’re providing. For example, a lower percentage of the total construction costs may include drafting and minimal consultation and guidance along the way, while a higher percentage could include on-site project management services with every detail attended to. Architects may also charge by the square footage of the project. The rate per square foot can vary depending on the individual’s training, the services they are providing, the complexity of the project, and other factors — such as obtaining permits. The national average cost to hire an architect is between $1,690 and $2,500.
